Pablo's Armchair Treasure Hunt

Pablo’s Armchair Treasure Hunt

Welcome to Pablo’s Armchair Treasure Hunt! This annual hunt has been running since 1985. Just before Christmas, a setting team buries or hides a small box somewhere in England, and posts on this website a set of elaborate puzzles and clues that reveal the hiding place. The challenge is to be the first to unearth the box, which usually takes a dedicated team anywhere from a week to a month.
